Enumeration of an Associated Name
« on: March 16, 2018, 07:51:00 am »
Hello All,

  Question regarding the flexibility with defining associations within EA. Is it possible to enumerate or leave as free text a "target role"? If so, how is this achieved? The target role I am dealing with is "associatedWith" but this may be too constricting to user base. Ideally when generating a message from the schema I would like the user to define that relationship or choose from a list.

Thanks!

Target role, could be one of the attributes defined in the Target or a free text.
if I get your expectation right, you may be after a 'Enum' tagged value to the connector

Thank you for the response. Now that you mention it, you are right in that I am after a "Enum" tagged value to the connector. That is done in the stereotype of the target, but where would I define the enumerations?

Thank you for your help in advance!

You can define one in the local model in 'UML Types' -> Tagged Values.
